A Reasonable Man tells the story of a city lawyer who comes across the case of a herdboy from remote, rural Zululand, who has killed a one year old baby in the mistaken belief that he was killing an evil spirit, known throughout Southern Africa as the "Tikoloshe". Dark Secrets which lie buried deep within the lawyer connect him to the boy. He takes the case and enters a world of African witchcraft and mysticism to discover the truth about the killing - and himself.Written by

This is a great, however unheard of movie. I caught it once on a satellite channel and have never seen it again. I can't find it on DVD for American players, but I keep looking. It is so important to tell this story especially in this day and time. To get my review published I must have at least ten lines. So I will keep on. This South Africa wonder should be exhibited more often. Many of our legal problems are decided today on what a reasonable man would do. This movie puts this in the proper perspective. I really do not want to give away the story here in hopes the movie's producers make the film available to more markets. The story, the actors and location are wonderful. Many of us in the U.S. market can relate and I am so sorry more people have not seen this film.
